Interviewing Lacy Danes about her new paranormal romance, Waterfall



Today I'm pleased to bring my readers an interview with Lacy Danes about her new paranormal romance release, Waterfall. Be sure to check out her book and the contest at the end of this post.





Thank you so much for having me on your blog.  It is a pleasure and a delight to be writing and promoting my craft again.  I hope you enjoy Waterfall and the rest of the Dragon’s Fate novellas as they come out.

Jordan, the hero of your book, Waterfall, is cursed by blood magic. He is an immortal trapped in human form, with only one hope of finding his eternal mate. What is blood magic?

My Zir are struggling to understand exactly how they were created. In this story they start to get a glimpse of that. Blood Magic for the sense of Dragon’s Fate is the magic and blood that was used to save them from death a long time ago. 

Why is Jordan cursed?

Jordan and his brothers were once coveted by a powerful king. I really can’t say more than that at this point as it would spoil the rest of their story.

According to this curse, Jordan must bite that woman—and pray she lives. Has Jordan bitten other women, hoping they were his eternal mate, only to end up killing them?

Yes. All but one of the Zir has bitten before. Some more than others.  Jordan is in the middle.

Once the requirements of the curse afflicting Jordan are met, will the magic be lifted from him? Will his eternal mate remain as a human woman or turn into an immortal form?

I am a pantster when I write, so I don’t plot.  I am just as uncertain their fate at this moment as everyone.  Grin. If I had to guess at the moment, it would be that they could shift, but don’t hold me to that. Grin.

Celeste, the heroine, is compelled to follow a mysterious man who professes to know her secret. A man with curious blue scales on his muscular arms—whose shadowed eyes reflect a dangerous mix of destiny and desire…  What danger does Jordan bring to Celeste’s life?

Magic, water, the paranormal world and love.

Briefly describe the magical systems of your world. How do those who are empowered gain their abilities?

In my world there are so many different kinds of paranormal abilities and beings. (Otherworldly beings). Many I only touch on briefly but of those I do, some by magic, some by mating, some by birth, and others by the traditional sense of being turned or infected(think vampires or blood drinkers).  As my Dragon’s fate Anthology progresses you will see more and more Otherworldly beings.

Oh and If you have not heard yet I am doing a drawing at the end of January for some cool items.  Please stop by my Facebook page, or my blog, and comment/sign up to be included.
Enjoy!
Lacy.

Book Description:

It’s easy to fall in love. Destiny requires tooth and claw.

Curses are designed to be cruel, but the one afflicting Jordan and his brothers  is almost beyond bearing. A dragon born by blood magic, he is an immortal  trapped in human form, with only one hope of finding his eternal mate. He must  bite her—and pray she lives.

One dark night, he senses the wounded heartbeat of a woman in the shadows, begging him to end her life. Ever the gentleman, he chivalrously obliges her wish. Only to discover three days later that she lives. And has married another.

Celeste always dreamed of marrying for love, but the nightmare of living in her father’s home drives her to wed the Duke of Hudson. Yet on her wedding eve, she is compelled to follow a mysterious man who professes to know her secret. A man with curious blue scales on his muscular arms—whose shadowed eyes reflect a dangerous mix of destiny and desire…

Warning: This novel contains explicit sex, sex in water, four super-hot dragon brothers, and a curse born from magical power that has left them wondering who they are all their lives.
